There was chaos at the General Aviation Terminal (GAT) of the Murtala Muhammad Airport (domestic) this morning when passengers of an Arik Air flight disrupted the operation of the airline over the cancellation of their flights.
The aggrieved passenger who had their Owerri flight cancelled on Thursday had stormed the Arik Air counter, insisting they must be airlifted to Owerri first before any other flight is operated this morning.
This degenerated into rowdiness at the domestic airport (MM1) leaving passengers scheduled for morning flights stranded.
The irate passengers also complained that the airline refused to give them food or water.
The airline officials were however seen pacifying the angry passengers who insisted their cancelled flight must be operated before any other flight today.
